North Carolina's Water Resources

North Carolina is rich in the diversity and quantity of its water resources. Our mountain streams and coastal plain bogs, bay lakes, pocosins and blackwater streams are unique ecosystems. Situated between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the seacoast are over 1,800 lakes ten acres or larger. Many of these waters are in trouble. A growing population, poorly planned development, exotic plants and animals and increased public demands threaten the quality of our lakes. Problems become evident when our waters become unsightly or are unsafe for drinking, fishing or swimming.  

What is the North Carolina Lake Management Society?

Our non-profit 501(c)3 organization was formed in 1994 and consists of homeowners, scientists, state agency representatives and citizens who want to take proactive and protective role in managing our state's water resources. The society is managed by a membership-approved Board of Directors consisting of a President, President-Elect, Immediate Past President, Secretary, Treasurer and two Members-at-Large. Our Executive Director manages the day-to-day function of NCLMS.
